The first issue of the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law has just been published. The journal provides scholarly articles and essays on the legal aspects of the sports and entertainment world which frequently draw from areas as diverse as antitrust law, constitutional law, civil procedure, contract law, copyright law, and labor law. Professor Paul Weiler, considered to be the founder of American sports law, was instrumental in getting the journal off the ground.
The current issue features articles on a wide range of topics, from obscenity and wikis, to Major League Baseball, the NBA, and the NHL. For a full list of articles, go to the table of contents. The website also includes links to online journals and websites that provide news and articles pertaining to sports and entertainment law. You can also view selected recordings from the journal’s recent symposium on labor uncertainty in sports.
